Bigger than Basketball Holiday Toy Drive

If you are from Springfield, IL you know one of the biggest rivalries in town is between Southeast and Lanphier high school. When basketball season rolls around, the SE and LHS game is the hottest ticket in town. This year Projectmack was able to bring both schools together and use their rivalry to create change within the city of Springfield. Leading up to the big rivalry match-up, both teams fund-raised together by selling exclusive "Bigger than Basketball Rivalry" shirts to their students and fans. The proceeds generated from the shirts were used to purchase toys for the Salvation Army Toy Drive. Together both schools raised almost $3,000! It was special to see both teams utilize their platform to spearhead change and impact within the community of Springfield. Fundraisers and events like so just remind us that it's bigger than Basketball.
